Truly makes for a Happy New Year!
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Seven swans a-swimming,
There is no more graceful bird than a swan.
"See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure."
“The LORD appeared to me from afar, saying, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with loving kindness.’” Jeremiah 31:3
